She looks every bit of thirty. She articulates very well, not like a 16 year old. Let this be a lesson on foreign adoptions.

If she has full pubic hair, as d adapted mother had discovered during bath time, therefore, she must be older. It was shocking for d adapted parents bcs they were told that she was 6 years old. Maybe dr Phil can adapt her since he believes in everything she says. I do believe d foster parents and it was really a nightmare!! They were lied to by d agency as well as that adapted daughter. I hope for d best for that tiny lady.

She’s a master manipulator, she clearly played on her vulnerability as a dwarf to get people to look after her and support her. I’ve read into this case and apparently there were 3 separate courts that ruled she was an adult 🤔

Not exactly. (1) One court, the first one, ruled she was an adult. Next (2) CPS tried to open a CHINS case and take custody of her. It was dismissed without an adjudication because Court 1 ruled she was adult. Next (3) Her new family got a pro bono attorney and returned to Court 1 and tried to get her original age restored. Judge denied reversing the earlier order that made her an adult. No previous court had or saw all the evidence that is now available which includes the birth mother and irrefutable evidence she was born in 2003 exactly as her original birth certificate said. There has clearly been a grave miscarriage of justice.

Can’t understand how dr Phil is fooled by her. She may have dwarfism which can make someone seem younger but her face is not that of a child it’s clear she’s adult in her 20s even early 30s. The story of how the adoption came about from what I’ve read was bizarre. In the end the only person that could or should be prosecuted is this adult pretending to be a child

@Laura Mccartney I think Barnetts executed a well planned smear campaign. It is known that Michael hired a PR firm to guide him. Barnetts are no strangers to publicly and manipulating public opinion. Most of the videos made simply regurgitate their claims without going in depth at all or pointing out obvious falsehoods. And no one on YouTube except Ready To Glare is showing any documents at all. RTG also had an exclusive with a little people family who almost adopted her 4 months before Barnetts did.

This adoption agency falsified a legal document. How is that not brought up. This girl has manipulated everyone. I have a real hard time believing this. The issue I have is with this adoption agency the way the contacted the family and said that he has 24 hours? My cousin adopted 2 kids and the closed adoption is that there's no contact at all. These were legal documents and they falsified them. Also the adoptive parents should have brought the so called toddler n to their pediatrician immediately. There's no way she could have been that dumb to think she was 6 with amount of pubic hair she had.

I don’t believe them saying it was some cold call. Because Michael talked about how they were in the process of adopting a girl from Haiti when the hurricane hit and put a halt to it. So I think it was probably the same agency or a sister agency that called them because that’s just too coincidental. Then Kristine in her interview revealed that they met the first family at the agency. They said the first family brought her to the agency. Kristine said she didn’t question why they were giving her up, she said “out of respect” for their difficult situation. So how can that be a closed adoption? When you actually meet the other parents? I think that proves the Barnetts are lying about those issues, and if they’re lying about things it ruins their credibility

When they find out child has a disability or mental illness after adopting them and its not show able. Yet when they found out Dwarfism they no longer wanted so they discarded her like trash because the adopted child didn't suit their needs or expectations. The card used is so what she is not my biological child its systems fault going to return her or abandon her if foster care won't take her back.....totally cruel. However even if her age is different if she has such extreme detachment, R.A.D or wven split personality psychological mental behavior disorder, even Bipolar then the parents should have done proper proceedings to have her placed with a family that can help her reguardless.I think they need to interview everyone she has been with.

Psychopaths - sociopaths r always convincing and they know pretty well what they want and how to get it, they calculate every step and they can fool anybody even the polygraph. This person is clearly an adult, maybe not exactly 30 but around 27. Even the way she answers that she is 16 is doubtful cuz of her look and that smile. On plus she remembers every detail of her childhood which is another red flag. Children at that age r more innocent and remember way less. No doubt everything was thought out and planned beforehand. Just look at the number of families she has been with. I’m pretty sure many of them (including the last one) were willing to love her and consider her a family member however something was always off. The family has no reason to lie about this cuz they took her in knowing about the syndrome and stuff, it makes no sense to take a child like this and then change ur mind, it’s a serious decision and huge responsibility, however Natalia does have a reason to trick others, like money for example and a good life. Now for sure she is not gonna mess up with the family who took her in cuz otherwise they could confirm all the statements about her r true.

@Milusik S I did not tell you that you couldn’t express your opinion. I just think your opinion is junk. There is only one dr on Barnetts side. A general practitioner who frankly isn’t qualified to render an opinion, as evidenced by what he wrote in the leaked letter. Getting her subtype of dwarfism incorrect. Referencing a diagnose that doesn’t exist (as he wrote it). You mentioned money motivation for the girl. What money is she getting by “pretending” to be an child? Did you know she gets SSI money that she didn’t qualify for as a child? Once they had her age changed, then she qualified. So if money motivated her, it motivated her to be Older not Younger. You overlook the Barnetts money motivation. First, to shed their financial obligations as parents (saved 10 yrs of supporting their child). But even more, to keep their story (the book Kristine was writing) marketable. Kristine sold the movie rights to her book before the book had even been released (sold rights in 2012, book released April 2013). The entire crux of the book is what an amazing super mom Kristine is. Who would buy a book from a failed parent? No one. So she wanted her gone, her surgical needs prevented traveling and promoting the book ;and interferes with the sons education and would have prevented them moving to Canada for his benefit. But gone in a way that did not reflect badly on them and hurt the book, hurt their pocketbook. So I think Barnetts were motivated by money, not the girl.

Dawn Smith wow! U r genius, I will sure send all of them my CV. How come I didn’t think about it? Thank you soooo much!! As a matter of fact, that was a subjective opinion based on my knowledge and life experience. I am free to express my thoughts and opinions as the comment section is ON. The orthopedic surgeon gives HIS subjective opinion based on his knowledge and experience, another orthopedic surgeon may have a different opinion, u don’t think so? If u personally have nothing to say regarding the subject better don’t say anything. Anyway, they did examine her before and she is as well believed to be around 30 by now. So any of them could be wrong, no? There’s enough evidence to believe she is old enough though. No one is 100% positive about her case. Since there’s no certainty people r free to opinion and say whatever they wanna say and it’s not Dawn Smith to tell us what to do. And yes, it happens that there r too many psychopaths / sociopaths around us and simply people with different personality disorders. Just for u to know everyone has some type of disorder except for 4% of all the humanity. And yes, this person in particular may have it. Everyone wants the best for him, have a good life, for this u do need 💵. It’s a big motivation for lots of people, u cannot deny it and some people do whatever they have to do to get what they want.

Maybe you should write the orthopedic surgeon who examined her. All those ex rays he took—a full skeletal survey! And all the years of schooling learning to evaluate epiphyseal plates and determine approximate age of the patient based upon how much of the plate remains. Let him know all he needs to see if how a person smiles. Who needs objective science when you got subjective feelings about a persons age, amirite? Maybe he can hire you to assist? Heck, take over!! Cause that doofus said she was approximately 11 years old in 2012. Then for a second job maybe you could assist the detectives. Who needs actual evidence when you can solve a case by just imaging Motive. If YOU can’t think of a motive then no need to look further. Of course I could suggest a half dozen possible motives, but why muddy the waters

It seems like a case of life imitating arts here. The movie Orphan was released in July 2009 but she was not adopted by the Bartnetts until 2010. Coincidence in the most creepy form.
